NSW Civil and Administrative Tribunal (NCAT)


The Commission may prosecute a complaint against a registered health practitioner before the Occupational Division of the NSW Civil and Administrative Tribunal. The Tribunal is legally separate from and independent of the relevant health professional council. Medical matters in NCAT are considered by a legally qualified Principal Member, Senior Members with relevant professional qualifications, and General Members who represent the community.

Hearings before the NSW Civil and Administrative Tribunal are public and the parties can be legally represented. For NSW, a list of current hearings can be accessed online on the Tribunal's website.

Persons attending a hearing must abide by any non-publications directions made by the Principal Member and any hearing and/or media guidelines.


Decisions made by NCAT in relation to registered health practitioners in NSW can be accessed via the Decisions and Orders section on our website or in the following ways:

For information on decisions made about registered health practitioners in other states and territories, please visit the website of the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency.
